FontTools-based package for querying system fonts

TTFQuery builds on the FontTools package to allow the Python programmer to accomplish a number of tasks:
  * query the system to find installed fonts
  * retrieve metadata about any TTF font file (even those not yet installed)
      o abstract family type
      o proper font name
      o glyph outlines  
  * build simple metadata registries for run-time font matching

With these functionalities, it is possible to readily create OpenGL solid-text rendering libraries which can accept abstract font-family names as font specifiers and deliver platform-specific TTF files to match those libraries.

TTFQuery doesn't provide rendering services, but a sample implementation can be found in the OpenGLContext project, from which TTFQuery was refactored.
